Subject: I guess it doesn't matter anyway...
This show has that driven energy
similar to M.I.T steps in 1970.
Hard to Handle with nice Slide work
A jumbo Morning Dew
Fast paced Other ONE
Freak- i will give it 5 bones already
and still in the middle of He Had to Die coda.
Also watch out for some of the reviews of this show
Just because they close with B.I.O.D.T.L
does not a conspiracy make.

Subject: The Other One
Great to hear a That's It For The Other One without the usual interruptions of track changes (Cryptical, Drums, etc.) It's the best way to appreciate Phil's opening of The Other One after the drum solo.

And what a Morning Dew!

Subject: Great show, Last 3 songs are "faked"
Incredible show. But if you listen to Lovelight and the next two songs, the audience is different and it sounds kind of like an outdoor venue. The last three songs are from a different show.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" April 18, 1969 at Purdue University, Layfayette, IN, U.S.A.


Forty years ago today the GRATEFUL DEAD were playin' at Purdue, where were you?

I couldn't be there in 1969 but I showed up today, where were you?

Classic 1969 sound. Magical, mythical, a "MUST HAVE" show.

I bet the freaks stood out a "little" at this show...

This GRATEFUL DEAD show took place around 90 days before Neil and Buzz walked on the Moon for the first time.

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1969 GRATEFUL DEAD collection. Charlie Miller did it again, another "Masterpiece".

5 Stars for the mix, recording, performance and transfer. Hey Man? It's a Charlie Miller transfer, I highly recommend you click on Charlie Miller's name and collect all his GRATEFUL DEAD shows, he's got some keepers.

Subject: What planet are the last 2 reviewers on???????
This is 1969---not 1991!!! Brown Eyed Woman is not even a song in for the blunted individual who thinks any show is a good show and proceeds to give this gem a 2 star rating......?????!!!!! As for what really is here---it is PRIME Primal Dead and a great SBD copy to cherish,almost 40 years after the fact. Slip-slidin', buzz sawin' Hard to Handle and a sick King Bee and Lovelight give us our bluesy Pig fix, 2 of Aoxomoxoa's greatest numbers and a couple "classics" for their 4 years together--Sittin' and Morning Dew.....nice smorgasboard of cuts in this compact set....anything that sounds this good 40 years later w/ great tunes and attentive,exuberant, playing w/ PigPen on board is a no-brainer 5 star, for myself. Great show, great sound. Thanks

Subject: not half bad.
Excellent concert, although you can't hear Jerry some of the time. Brown eyed Woman is the highlight to me.
